Why Is Mould Dangerous?
Some people are more sensitive to mould than others, mould exposure can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, itchy or red eyes and skin.

Continuous exposure can lead to further problems down the road.
I Have Allergies / Asthma, Am I at a Greater Risk?

I Can't See Mould, Can I Still Have Mould in My Home?
Yes, mould is commonly found behind walls and dark, damp areas we tend to not see. If mould is not visible, we may need to test for the presence of mould using air testing methods or opening up walls and other areas prone to mould growth.
How is Mould Removed from My Home / Building
We remove mould in a similar fashion to asbestos. We often set up a containment work area to eliminate contamination to the rest of the building. We use specialized filtration and/or air movement to remove the airborne mould spores which we're completing the remediation process
Can I Stay in My Home/ Building While the Remediation is Taking Place?
No, under most circumstances, we require all occupants leave the home during the remediation process to ensure everyone stays safe and healthy during the process. We lock all doors when we leave and make every effort to keep the building safe during this period. For large buildings, occupants are not allowed in or around the work area.
Do You Use Safe Products in the Removal Process?
Most of the time, the products we use are completely safe and aren't any more harmful than vinegar. The products are very eco-friendly. In the rare occasion we need to use something stronger, we ensure a thorough clean up process is completed afterwards.
